    Deezer is an excellent option since its user experience is quite similar to Spotify, but it also has approximately 70 million songs available, about 30 million more than its competitor. It also has a feature similar to the Shazam called SongCatcher, which you can use to identify the name of the songs that are playing. Flow is another cool feature missing on Spotify, with recommendations created exclusively for you and songs that you no longer remember so you can enjoy long hours of music. The free version of Deezer works similar to Spotify (although with less advertising between songs), but you can always get the premium version from $10 USD.

    Deezer roughly pays the artists 40% more money per stream than Spotify ($0.0064 instead of $0.00437, according to dittomusic.com). It doesn't seem like much, but to me it's an fairly important point, which led me to use Deezer over Spotify.

    Deezer in comparison to Spotify pays their artists much better and has a larger catalog of songs. Other than the main things, the UI is better and the ability to read lyrics while listening to a song makes this a must-have for people that like karaoke.

  2. Soundcloud is known for having an impressive music and audio library. We are talking about more than 200 million files between songs and podcasts. This is mainly because it is the preferred music streaming platform for new indie artists, those that you probably couldn't find on Spotify (shoutouts to electronic music lovers). The main disadvantage with SoundCloud is that you won't find a lot of well-known established artists.

    It also works as a kind of music social network where you can share, like, and comment on entries; highlight parts of songs; create your own lists and podcasts; and follow your favorite artists. All this means that you can find an impressive variety of content compared to Spotify. Soundcloud has a free version with ads, but you can subscribe to one of their premium memberships from as little as $5 USD per month.

  3. YouTube Music has an important advantage over Spotify, in addition to its extensive music catalog, it includes millions of videos and uses the extremely intelligent and powerful YouTube search engine, which means that you just have to type or say some word that identifies a song or part of the lyrics and you will surely find it.

    Its interface is really easy and familiar to navigate, on its main page you will find different playlists according to your mood. Thus, if you need more energy, need to focus, or need to relax or cheer up, you can use them to forget about looking for specific genres or songs.

    But beyond the content, there are two main advantages: you can have your music offline or watch videos without having to be connected to WiFi or mobile data. In addition, you can have YouTube videos in the background and continue using other applications without the music being cut until you decide. You can purchase YouTube Music Premium from $10 USD.

    Tidal is a great alternative to Spotify if what you are most interested in is audio quality, as it has standard sound options but also HiFi quality ($19 USD/month). It also has support for official videos in a big part of its catalog. In addition, it offers you the option to select your playlists from other platforms and transfer them to Tidal, which is a great advantage if you want to change your usual streaming music app and try Tidal without losing your music. On the other hand, on many occasions you will be able to access exclusive events with artists and buy tickets for their shows before they go on sale to the general public.

    JohnFastman

    TIDAL is the only serious music streaming service that offers Hi-Fi sound quality (FLAC, 1440 kbps, rather than Spotify's 320 kbps). This makes it a uniques and valuable service, particularly if you're an audiophile who genuinely appreciates the difference. However, TIDAL has: no playlist sharing and no Linux client.

    While Spotify mainly focuses on music and podcasts, Jango works more like a free custom internet radio and social network. You can create your own radio stations based on artists or bands and customize them through ratings or adding more artists that will determine what is the best type of content for your radio station. You can also browse the recommended catalog or refine other users' stations.
